New Delhi , Mar. 04 : The Election Commission on Friday rejected the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam's (AIADMK) response on the elevation of V.K. Sasikala as party's general secretary, stating that TTV Dinakaran, who signed the letter, was not an office bearer of the party anymore.

The EC has now asked Sasikala to submit the reply either under her own signature or any authorized signatory whose name is in the party office bearers' list.

Earlier on February 17, the EC had issued a notice to Sasikala on a petition filed by O. Panneerselvam loyalist Maitreyan and others challenging the nomination of J. Jayalalaithaa's loyalist as AIADMK's general secretary.

In a letter sent to Sasikala, the EC mentioned about the two petitions filed by Maitreyan.

Sasikala was asked to reply by February 28.
